Alkanes Short Info

Alkanes are a 3-piece Alt. Rock/Alt. Metal band based in Aberdeen, for fans of Arcane Roots, Biffy Clyro, Fightstar and Oceansize.

Following the last gig from Inverness band Purple Divide in 2013, Guitarist Dale Sutherland looked to challenge himself with a new project. After experimenting with his song writing, Dale set his sights on a project a little heavier than Purple Divide. With a particular focus on big dynamic riffs and drawing influence from bands such as Arcane Roots, Biffy Clyro, Muse, Oceansize and Fightstar. Dale began to develop what was to become the sound of Alkanes.

Forming in 2014, Alkanes hit the ground running and have shared the stage with some of the UK’s finest up and coming acts in the Rock and Metal scene including Carnivores, Axis Of, Emilio Largo, Bear Arms and ACODA. The band also headlined The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen in September 2015.

The band’s debut EP ‘A Different Kind of Perfect’ is out now to stream/buy on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon and Google Play.
